I think you might have hit the nail on the head there.  I (or rather my 
husband) has been looking through the upgraded packages and it seems 
that the nvidia supported drivers are almost non existant.  I'm 
currently doing the trawl through google to find out what I need to make 
things work and see if it resolves the issues.  I'm aware that nvidia 
support can be erratic so I might need to do a fair bit of work on this.

Again thanks to everyone for their suggestions.
